Correlations Episode 8 Part Two
In part two, Rick and I spend a little time talking about the recent scandal involving Rupert Murdoch's paper The News of the World, which has now collapsed under the leadership of Rebekah Brooks. We look at both Brooks' and Murdoch's charts, and also briefly discuss Murdoch's current transits. We then move to a dialogue about a couple of questions I've been reflecting on recently regarding the nature of archetypes, and how they correlate to configurations in the natal chart and transits. I've been reflecting on the truth that each of us contain all of the archetypes (or perhaps more accurately, as Carl Jung and James Hillman would insist, we are contained within all of the archetypes), that we all have access to all of the archetypal energies all of the time as represented by the planetary archetypes and there combinations with each other (aspects). But what then does this imply for astrology which suggests that certain archetypes are more dominant in some of us, and that certain archetypes can become more dominant at certain times (transits). Does the fact that we have access to all of the archetypes all of the time, mean that any correlations we find to natal positions or transits are ultimately meaningless (in a spiritual sense) given that we contain everything anyway? A rich dialogue ensues.
